This teaser trailer was incredible. It showed the right amount of story mixed with the right amount of cool marketing material. After the Entertainment Weekly special on Thor Ragnarok some people where left wondering what was going on in those pictures. After this teaser many of those questions are answered. We get to see what happens to Thor’s hammer, his hair and his home in the teaser, however still gives little away in regards to the plot and direction of this film
The trailer also shows off Cate Blancett as Hela, Jeff Goldblum as The Grand Master and Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie as well as The Incredible Hulk in gladiator attire. I think all these characters look awesome and bring a new flavour to the Thor Universe. We see Hela in action as she destroys Mjolnir and appears to destroy Asgard and the visuals for that look incredible. The new planet that Thor is sent reminds me of Pandora from Borderlands with all the weird and awesome looking characters. I also think you can tell this film was directed by Taika Waititi especially with the final shot of the trailer which shows off Thor’s reaction to seeing Hulk in the arena.
This trailer doesn’t feel like the other Thor movies, it highlights a much bigger universe similar to the vain of Guardians of the Galaxy. Given the poor reception to Thor The Dark World it may be a good thing that the vibe has changed in Ragnarok. I really like the look of this trailer and think it gives off a great vibe of a fun movie. This could be the best Marvel movie of the year.
